The 2011 Jeep Patriot received a host of upgrades and was designed to be a people-pleaser. It can accommodate everyone’s needs from hauling the family to work and school, and even to the off-road hiking sites you head to on the weekends. Edmunds.com says “as compact crossovers go, the Jeep Patriot is indeed the one meant to get dirty, whether it’s simple weekend sport or real all-terrain mobility.” And with great fuel economy, easy clean fabrics, and plenty of storage, this is one family mover that will stand up to just about anything.
The power of the Patriot comes from the front-wheel drive 2.0L 4-cylinder DOHC 16V engine that produces 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque. Combine that capable engine with the smooth shifting CVT and the Patriot will happily deliver an EPA estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg out on the highway. And the Freedom Drive all-wheel drive system gives you the ability to head off the beaten path.
The interior of the Patriot is loaded with Jeep style including large gauges, user friendly controls, and easy to clean surfaces. There’s plenty of room for 4 in the Patriot, and the 60/40 split rear seats can be folded down to accommodate over 53′ of cargo. The front passenger seat can also be folded completely flat to carry extra long stuff. The Patriot’s standard features include cruise control, outside temperature display, 16″ steel wheels, fog lamps, steering wheel mounted controls, and an audio system with CD player auxiliary audio jack. There are plenty of options to add to your Patriot like power adjustable heated leather seats, bigger wheels, keyless entry with remote ignition, skid plates, hill-decent control, automatic climate control, a sunroof, and even a 9-speaker Boston Acoustics audio system with two fold-down speakers in the tailgate.
The Patriot also received high marks during crash tests with safety features that include 4-wheel ABS brakes with emergency brake assist, stability control, traction control, tire pressure monitoring system, active head restraints, front & rear head airbags, and side-curtain airbags. The Patriot is also available with supplemental front seat side airbags. And the Patriot will work to help you keep your most precious cargo safe with rear child safety door locks, LATCH child seat anchors, and 3-point safety belts at all seat positions.
